    [Дети ворона : 1938 год] E–pub Ç Yulia Yakovleva Lordy this was a bit of a struggle It wasn’t until about half way through that I began to think it may be a translated work and yes it indeed is and I fear that A LOT has gone missing in translation As it is this is a bit clunky and I’m not sure of its target audience its mystical and fantastical eyes and ears in the wall talking birds and invisible people may be too sophisticated for children to understand and too simplistic for adult

    [Дети ворона : 1938 год] E–pub Ç Yulia Yakovleva Woah That was INTENSE I wonder if this is considered a children’s book in Russia The metaphor is both simple and deeply complex It left me wanting to read about the darkest periods of Russian history I guess I’d call it magical realism? But also historical fiction And the ending oh my Very good

Дети ворона : 1938 год

review Дети ворона : 1938 год read & download Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB Û Yulia Yakovleva Yulia Yakovleva Û 3 free download Russia in 1938 is a place of great terror Joseph Stalin is in charge His Secret Police are everywhere searching for anyone who might be his enemy People have no idea who they can trustSeven year old Shura doesn't know about any of this He's happy in his little home in Leningrad. Russia was in a very dark period from the mid to late 30 s under the leadership of Stalin Much akin to what Orwell described in 1984 this period in Russia is filled with fear general distrust paranoia and dread A glimpse behind the curtain reveals that all this simply reflects Stalin s own state of mind at that time as a result of the murder of his close ally and senior party member Sergey Kirov in late 1934 Obviously affected and shaken by the incident he d taken to excessively improving his personal security and avoided going out in public as much as possible He also went on to form NKVD troika which eventually became the KGB that were instrumental in the death and assassination of many who were deemed spies and enemies of the state thus leading to that period of time in Russian history that has come to be known as The Great Terror The Raven s Children is set upon this period in time What s interesting though is that the book seems to be targeted at childrenThe story starts off with the antics of young boys playing near the railroads full of innocence and mischief which should make anyone nostalgic enough Needless to say things uickly escalate and pretty soon veers into the reality of the time where everyone is fearful of spies or at least of being perceived as spies As with Guillermo del Toro s Pan s Labyrinth The Raven s Children alternates between what s real and what s not so real in the midst of 7 year old Shura s harsh life Though it doesn t become clearly evident when it actually happens the story crosses a point in where reality ceases or inter mingles with the fantasy and it does take the reader by surprise as up until that point there was no indication that this was the route it was going to go The initial pages are an interesting study of the working class Russia in the late 30 s This genre switch may come across as a strength in the narrative or a weakness depending on how you look at it but at parts it does seem to undermine the initial emotional investment with the main characters Still it was interesting to discover an intriguing world within a world sometimes referred to as the other side or Not Leningrad where charming characters both people and animals makes appearances Heavy symbolism and metaphors present itself eg ears growing out of walls but the story does not dwell into such literary devices too much instead of just providing a passing reference to it Similar imageries presented towards the last act continues to be abstract as well and it will be interesting to understand how children would react to this book but there are definitely much for an adult to think and deliberate about As with all stories with a touch of magical realism the ending seems ambiguous and a little open ended and this may just be because there are simply no good ways to bring such tales to a satisfying end It was definitely an interesting read and perhaps much has been lost in translation but a Murakami fan would probably enjoy this
